    Once in a great while a film seems right in every detail. Andre Techine's Strayed ("Les Egares") is such a film.
  2. 90
    As with Téchiné's best work, Strayed is a peculiar, lingering blend of robustness and delicacy--a movie with hardly a single wasted frame, incongruous word, or false gesture.

    Elegant and understated.
  4. 75
    Begins and ends with facts of war, but it is really a film about the nature of male and female, about middle-class values and those who cannot afford them, about how helpless we can be when the net of society is broken.
  5. 70
    Long expert at unforgettable characterizations, Techine turns his talents toward creating an evocative sense of time and mood.
  6. 70
    It's an impressive, intelligent, compact piece of filmmaking...But Téchiné might be one of those directors whose work is best appreciated by critics and other filmmakers.
  7. A picture-book French film that's pretty and trite, rather than edgy and moving.
